You already know the amazing health benefits of coconut oil, but did you know it’s also great for teeth whitening? Intrigued? If you’re looking for a gentle way to brighten up your smile, you should consider adding Coconut oil to your daily hygiene routine. Unlike other harsh whitening products, coconut oil offers natural benefits that help with teeth sensitivity.
Lauric acid is a medium-chain fatty acid that makes up almost 50% of coconut oil. It aids in the removal of plaque and improves gum health, which makes the enamel appear whiter. Here is how to do it;
- Put a tablespoon of coconut oil in your mouth.
- Swish the oil around for 15–20 minutes, pushing and pulling it between teeth.
- Spit out the oil.
- Brush your teeth.
You will notice significant by day 7, but be patient in 30 days you will be happier. Thrusting the oil between each tooth will not only result in a brighter smile, but it is also a great detox that will improve your total oral health.
